Architecture and Design for Children and Youth contains articles by professionals within the two fields as well as interviews with trend-setting architects, designers and top business people in which they give their views on how to render architecture and design relevant to children and young people. Best practice examples from experiments and projects in local districts and institutions illustrate the sort of work already being done around Denmark to present architecture and design to children.
Architecture and Design for Children and Youth is the result of two years’ work by a professional project group consisting of representatives from various professional bodies and institutions. It is aimed at promoters of architecture and design, schoolteachers, child-care professionals, architects and designers, and at parents with an interest in the teaching of architecture and design to children and young people.
Architecture and Design for Children and Youth is published by the Danish Network for Children and Culture - the Danish Minister of Culture and Ministry of Culture’s advisory board for children and culture.
The Danish Network for Children and Culture is comprised of four of the Ministry’s central agencies: the Danish Film Institute, the Heritage Agency of Denmark, the Danish Arts Council/Arts Agency and the Danish Agency for Libraries and Media together with the Ministry of Social Affairs and the Ministry of Education.
